Is coconut oil healthy? You may feel more confused than ever on the subject, thanks to the American Heart Association’s (AHA) June 2017 report on saturated fats.

Vegetable oil consumption now linked to trans-fats and pesticides found within human tissues

By Jockers: (NaturalNews) Vegetable oil is a product consumed worldwide. Production sky rocketed with advances made in agricultural farming from the industrial revolution. The most common vegetable oils include soybean oil, cottonseed oil, canola (rapeseed) oil, corn oil and safflower oil. Studies reveal that vegetable oil consumption is now linked to trans-fatty acids and pesticides being found within human tissues.

Omega-3 fatty acids reduce toxic effects of chemotherapy - MSM reports this as a bad thing!

By Gutierrez: (NaturalNews) According to many media reports, a recent study in JAMA Oncology found that omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the effectiveness of cancer treatment.

"Cancer patients who eat herring and mackerel or take omega-3 supplements may end up resistant to chemotherapy, a study has warned," writes the Daily Mail.

The same stories have reported the researchers' recommendation that people undergoing chemotherapy refrain from eating oily fish or taking fish oil or omega-3 supplements on the day of their treatment.

Ask the Expert: Omega-3 Fatty Acid


Omega-3 fatty acids (also known as n-3 fatty acids) are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are essential nutrients for health. We need omega-3 fatty acids for numerous normal body functions, such as controlling blood clotting and building cell membranes in the brain, and since our bodies cannot make omega-3 fats, we must get them through food. Omega-3 fatty acids are also associated with many health benefits, including protection against heart disease and possibly stroke. New studies are identifying potential benefits for a wide range of conditions including cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and other autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

Controversy: Are Omega-3s Really Linked To A Higher Cancer Risk?


As an integrative physician who has worked with hundreds of prostate cancer patient over the years, I find last week’s news on a new omega-3 study very thought provoking. The study supposedly showed that consuming more omega-3 fats, such as those found in fish oil, might increase your risk for prostate cancer. But many experts disagree with that conclusion.

Omega-3 supplements provide an effective protective shield against skin cancer


Omega-3 fatty acids from fish, walnuts, seeds and supplements have been shown to effectively protect against many forms of cancer, cardiovascular disease and dementia, as the long-chain fats are preferentially channeled to form cell wall membranes that fight systemic inflammation and boost the body's immune response. The typical diet is dangerously deficient in omega-3 fats, as they become rapidly degraded through food processing and are grossly imbalanced with omega-6 fats to create a metabolic environment that has been shown to promote disease.

Omega-3 fats found in fish oil boost immune response to help fight inflammation and disease


Most people take a healthy immune response for granted, as it typically remains on guard detecting a host of known and as yet unidentified pathogens that may threaten our health. Bacteria and viruses that cause the common cold, flu, digestive distress and a variety of potentially fatal illnesses are identified and destroyed before they cause more than a minor discomfort. For most of the past decade, fish consumption and supplementing with DHA and EPA fortified supplements has been shown to lower levels of systemic inflammation and significantly reduce the risk of developing many cancers, stroke and cardiovascular disease, yet the precise mechanism of action has been unknown.
